Pete joined the Pendant team in October 2021 as a Panel Technician with the primary role of building high quality control panels for Pendant projects, and is currently making a transition to a role as an Estimator with responsibility for turning out high quality project proposals. Born in the Washington DC area, Pete grew up in Bel Air, MD, a short distance from Pendant’s office in Havre de Grace.
Pete was introduced to Pendant by James Butler, Pendant’s VP of Project Execution, and so far we have James to thank for that (as opposed to blame). Pete has blended in nicely with the Pendant team and he especially enjoys the companionship and willingness to work together on common goals. He has also taken well to Havre de Grace which he likes for its variety of things to do and the scenic walks all around the area.
An avid sports fan, we must apologize in advance for his mystifying love of the NY Yankees, although he somewhat redeems himself by being a fan of the Baltimore Ravens. He also counts Chelsea (EPL), the Washington Capitals, and the Portland TrailBlazers as his favorites in other sports.
Pete wants everyone to know that he has learned very quickly that the Pendant team, while heavily emphasizing standards, also shows a great deal of willingness to take on new challenges and push our limits.
On the personal side, Pete chooses Bart as his favorite Simpsons character because of his ability to be at the peak of wisdom and the depths of stupidity at the same time. Pete loves to read and loves to run (not sure if he does both at the same time), and is a fan of LEGO. He highly recommends the book “Unbroken” as a reminder for anyone engaging in self-pity that it can’t be that bad compared to what the hero of the book, Louis, went through. He’s also a fan of the movie “Remember the Titans” for its impact on his understanding of the tensions and issues that were occurring at the time of the movie’s setting (at a scholl he would have attended had his family not moved to Maryland).
Finally, in an interesting juxtaposition, Pete loves the outdoors and outdoor activities (including exterior design), but also has a strong liking for interior design and certain shows on HGTV he describes as his guilty pleasure.
We’re glad you’re on board Pete. We’ll see you running around town!
